Today's Call Sheet:
The new musical is inspired by the themes and raw emotions laid bare in Alanis Morissette's seminal album of the same name. The Healys appear to be a picture-perfect suburban family - but looks can be deceiving. When the cracks beneath the surface begin to show, they must choose between maintaining the status quo or facing harsh truths about themselves, their community, and the world around them.
Drama Desk Award nominee Elizabeth Stanley (On the Town), Sean Allan Krill (Honeymoon in Vegas), Derek Klena (Anastasia), and newcomer Celia Rose Gooding, and star as The Healy Family (Mary Jane, Steve, Nick, and Frankie, respectively), alongside Lauren Patten (Fun Home) as Jo, Kathryn Gallagher (Spring Awakening) as Bella, Antonio Cipriano as Phoenix, and Logan Hart as Andrew, all of whom reprise their roles from the musical's world premiere engagement.
Long before he had audiences cheering 'Brava' as the Broadway host on SiriusXM radio, Seth Rudetsky was interviewing stars every Thursday night at Don't Tell Mama. On Seth's Broadway Chatterbox, which Seth launched in 1999, the best of Broadway would join Seth for an hour of intimate behind-the-scenes stories, prompted by Rudetsky's funny, insightful and revealing questions - and the music from the stars' stellar Broadway career.
To celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the series, Seth was joined by his first-ever guests, Paul Castree and Paige Price, as well as his Disaster co-stars Roger Bart and Kevin Chamberlin, as they all reunited at Don't Tell Mama. BroadwayWorld is excited to bring you the full show below!
